Headlight Control Module Market

Headlight Control Module Market by Technology (Halogen, LED, Xenon), Application (On/Off, Bending/Cornering, High Beam Assist, and Headlight Leveling), Vehicle Type, Passenger Vehicle Segment, And Region- Global Forecast to 2027

Report Code: AT 7205 Jun, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[162 Pages Report] The global headlight control module market is projected to grow from USD 3.6 billion in 2019 to USD 5.0 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period. Increase in premium and SUV sales, and advancements in lighting technology are some of the major factors driving the growth of the global market.

Headlight Control Module Market

Headlight control module used for LED headlight technology is estimated to grow the fastest during the forecast period

LED headlights are offered typically in the premium vehicles due to their various benefits such as less power consumption, more adaptive features, and aesthetically appealing looks. Due to such features, LED is considered as the major market for headlight control modules and the same is expected to continue in the future.

Headlight control module market for the passenger vehicle segment is estimated to grow at a faster rate than the light commercial vehicle segment

Penetration of adaptive headlight in the passenger vehicle segment is higher in comparison to the light commercial vehicle segment. The rising sales of passenger vehicles, coupled with the willingness of consumers to pay more for personal cars, are expected to drive this market in this segment. Global passenger vehicle production increased from 69.5 million units in 2016 to 70.8 million units in 2017.

High beam assist continues to have the largest market share during the forecast period

Headlight control module used for providing an automatic high beam is beneficial for driving, especially on highways, as it automatically switches between high beam and low beam, based on the oncoming traffic from the opposite direction. Regulations regarding driving and lighting, coupled with the increasing traffic along with rising consumer awareness regarding safety while driving is expected to drive the growth of this segment during the forecast period.

Headlight Control Module Market

Asia Pacific is the largest growing market during the forecast period

The Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate in the global headlight control module due to high consumer adoption and high sales of automobiles. China and Japan garnered the largest shares within the market due to the high production and sales of vehicles domestically. Additionally, manufacturers in these countries focus on technological advancements, including lighting, thus, driving the demand for headlight control modules. The rise in the consumer per capita income and high sales of SUVs in emerging economies such as India will drive the market further.

There has been a high demand for headlight control due to the increase in premium car sales. Increasing adoption of these modules in the lower and mid-segment cars is expected to open new opportunities for the growth of the market in this region during the forecast period.

Key Market Players

The headlight control module market is dominated by players like Hella (Germany), Valeo (France), Continental (Germany), Denso (Japan), Hyundai Mobis (South Korea), Aptiv (Ireland), Osram (Germany), Magnetic Marelli (Italy), ZKW (Austria), Renesas (Japan), Lear Corporation (United States), Koito (Japan), NXP (Netherlands), Keboda (China), and Keetec (Slovakia).

The key strategies adopted by major companies to sustain their position in the market are expansions, contracts and agreements, and partnerships.
Hella (Germany) is the leading player in the global market. It has a diverse portfolio and is one of the oldest players in the automotive headlight technology established in 1899. The company is present across Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Russia, and Brazil through its strong network.
